Heart Valve Center

Shipley Cardiothoracic Center and the cardiologists of Healthpark Medical Center represent the first Heart Valve Center in Southwest Florida! The Heart Valve Center represents a coordinated effort between cardiology and the Shipley surgeons to bring a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to valve disease. In a single center, patients and their referring physicians will have access to a complete array of valve therapies including all transcatheter therapies, minimally invasive surgical approaches and traditional open heart options.  

The highlight of the center is the weekly valve conference bringing together Healthpark’s premier medical staff in treating valve disease; cardiologists, anesthesiologists, cardiac surgeons, operating room staff and nursing.  In this conference, treatment plans that address each patient’s unique needs will be discussed in order to optimize the management of each patient.  Additionally, patient’s referring physicians are invited to participate in their patient’s evaluation and receive immediate feedback regarding the interventional plan.  Patients will benefit from not only the comprehensive and cohesive multi-disciplinary team approach but also the opportunity to participate in new therapies on the horizon by enrolling in clinical trials available at Shipley.  

With a state-of-the-art hybrid operating room and another on the way, Shipley Cardiothoracic Center has done the most transcatheter procedures in Southwest Florida since the program's initiation. The Heart Valve Center is a continuation of the quality and expertise that has made Shipley Cardiothoracic Center the premier SWFL cardiac surgery program.
